Difficult Times Will Come

Unchecked Copy Box2Ti 3:1 -

But know this, that in the last days difficult times will come.

Unchecked Copy Box2Ti 3:2 - For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy,
Unchecked Copy Box2Ti 3:3 - unloving, irreconcilable, [fn]malicious gossips, without self-control, without gentleness, without love for good,
Unchecked Copy Box2Ti 3:4 - treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God,
Unchecked Copy Box2Ti 3:5 - holding to a form of [fn]godliness, but having denied its power. Keep away from such men as these.
Unchecked Copy Box2Ti 3:6 - For among them are those who [fn]enter into households and take captive [fn]weak women weighed down with sins, being led on by various desires,
Unchecked Copy Box2Ti 3:7 - always learning and never able to come to the [fn]full knowledge of the truth.
Unchecked Copy Box2Ti 3:8 - Just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so these men also oppose the truth, men of depraved mind, disqualified in regard to the faith.
Unchecked Copy Box2Ti 3:9 - But they will not make further progress, for their folly will be obvious to all, just as theirs was also.
Unchecked Copy Box2Ti 3:10 -

But you followed my teaching, conduct, purpose, faith, patience, love, [fn]perseverance,

Unchecked Copy Box2Ti 3:11 - persecutions, and sufferings, such as happened to me at Antioch, at Iconium, and at Lystra. What persecutions I endured, and out of them all the Lord rescued me!
Unchecked Copy Box2Ti 3:12 - Indeed, all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will be persecuted.
Unchecked Copy Box2Ti 3:13 -

But evil men and impostors will proceed from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived.

Unchecked Copy Box2Ti 3:14 -

But you, continue in the things you learned and became convinced of, knowing from whom you learned them,

Unchecked Copy Box2Ti 3:15 - and that from childhood you have known the sacred writings which are able to make you wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
Unchecked Copy Box2Ti 3:16 - All Scripture is [fn]God-breathed and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for [fn]training in righteousness,
Unchecked Copy Box2Ti 3:17 - so that the man of God may be equipped, having been thoroughly equipped for every good work.
